“Dog walking is no job; it's a passion!”

Hi there! I have been walking dogs in Hoboken, NJ for over 2 years now, which I absolutely love! I have had an endearing love for dogs since 2001 when my parents finally gave into the many pleas of my two younger brothers and I to get us a dog. We were introduced to Tiki, a magnificent Black Labrador, who became the sister we never had.

I doubt you're ever gonna find anyone who loves dogs more than I do. I've lived with dogs my whole life, walked at least 100 of my friends dogs, read dog books, volunteered at the Humane society in Hawaii, donate to ASPCA monthly, and just love them like crazy. I'm used to walking between 35.000 to 45.000 steps a day and can't wait to start walking your little one.

Hi there. My name is Dan. I go to school at GW, and I'm looking to walk some local pooches to help pay for school. I'm new to the world of professional pet care, but I'm no stranger to caring for dogs. I have a basset hound mix named Bon Bon back home (who I miss like crazy) that I've loved and cared for the past 8 years. I've also had experience sitting and walking dogs for neighbors and relatives. I look forward to getting out to meet some new pups and brighten their days.

Hello, my name is Gideon. I had two dogs when I was a boy, and I have always loved them. As an adult, I personally rescued a 6-month old Pit Bull Terrier who had been abandoned in the street, and she was the best dog ever! Training and raising her taught me a lot about how dogs behave, and how to walk them responsibly. Thank you for reading my bio, I look forward to meeting and walking your dogs!

Dog Walking in Elmwood Park

Quiet and tranquil are key features of the borough of Elmwood Park in New Jersey. Pup parents often take their pooch for an evening walk and socialize with friends while the pups play in the yard. The area is centrally located, and you can usually find a restaurant like Que Pasta Istanbul Café and Restaurant where your pup can enjoy a meal with you at the outdoor tables. Dog lovers are often found at Natural Way Café that specializes in vegetarian food with patio seating where humans and pups can enjoy dining together.

Four well-established veterinarian clinics in Elmwood Park can help keep your furry family member healthy. Healing Paws Veterinary Care offers individualized care for your pup and are available for both emergency and routine needs. Making sure you and your pup get enough exercise is easy if you enjoy a stroll along the Passaic River. Walking down River Drive allows you and Fido to enjoy the beautiful weather and work off excess energy.

When traveling with your pup, consider staying at the pooch-friendly Hyatt Place Hotel Fairlawn where pups can spend the night in the comfortable rooms for an extra fee. Another option when traveling is The Vue located through Airbnb in Hackensack, NJ just five miles from town.
